General information about the Orangemarked Goby

The Orangemarked Goby originates from the rubble zones of the Solomon Islands. They are a sand-sifting species that constantly make mouthfuls of sand as part of their hunt for food. They sport a long body that has bright orange markings along the face. They fade into an orange coloration that extends across the body. The horizontal lines are connected by vertical lines that run across the body to give it the appearance of a checkerboard. They are generally peaceful fish that aid in keeping your sand bed fresh and tidy. It is best to keep it in an aquarium that is well-established with lots of live rock and a substrate made of fine to moderately-sized sand. A well-constructed canopy is essential to stop it from jumping out of the aquarium. It’s not likely to be aggressive toward other fish, but it is territorial and fights with its own kind unless they’re mated.
